Those born in the ‘60s and ‘70s remember the impossible-to-fold, convenience store maps used for family trips or to get around a city. They might have been undetailed and two-dimensional, but they made the trips exciting in a “I’m not sure we’re on the right road” kind of way.
The introduction of GPS navigators, then smart phones with integrated GPS maps capable of showing streets in 3D, revolutionized driving and getting from A to B in the quickest way possible. Now many rely on 3D views to find an unknown address, understand surroundings, the landscape, or simply get oriented.

The beauty and utility of 3D are certainly not limited to family road trips. 3D maps allow for the visualization of space in an intuitive and natural way, allowing for faster and more efficient decision-making and analysis in several fields including Defense & Security, Geo-Intelligence, Disaster Management & Emergency Response, Infrastructure Management, Smart Cities and Automotive and Autonomous Vehicles, among others. 3D environments are compelling to interpret everything spatial including aircraft trajectories, lines of sight, electro-magnetic signals, or dense urban environments.
Presagis’ VELOCITY 5D software allows for the rapid production of 3D maps, simulation-ready environments, and digital twins, making the leap from 2D to 3D simulation accessible to all. V5D turns massive amounts of GIS data into rich, multi-spectral environments. And in the near future, V5D will add pattern of life, CGF / crowds, traffic, interactions, and behaviors.
